The name Vardie was brought to England by the Normans when they conquered the country in 1066. The ancestors of the Vardie family lived in Cumberland. Their name, however, is a reference to the Barony of La Ferte, Normandy, the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.

Vardie Early Origins



The surname Vardie was first found in Cumberland where they held a family seat anciently after the Norman Conquest in 1066.

Vardie Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Vardie has been recorded under many different variations, including Vardy, Vardey, Vartey, Varty, Verty, Vertie and others.

The Great Migration



To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Vardies were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: Miles Vardey settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1816; Mrs. Vardy, her husband and two children, settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1765; Elizabeth Vardy settled in Virginia in 1653.
